December 2, 2016: Mxyzptlk Set to Appear on “Supergirl”

mxyzptlk-supergirlReports are that Mr. Mxyzptlk, the imp from the 5th dimension, is set to make an appearance on the “Supergirl” TV series.

While no casting announcement has been made yet, the mischievous imp is expected to appear in two episodes during the second half of Season 2.

As comic book fans know, Mxyzptlk plagues Superman (and Supergirl from time to time) every 90 days with pranks and insight. The only way he can be defeated is by tricking him into saying his name backwards.

Mxy can be fun in small doses so I don’t know about using him for a two-parter. Though I guess it’s going to depend on what the shows take on him is. Is he going to be something closer to the classic mischievous imp or are they gonna go the Smallville route where he’s a handsome dude with mind-control powers or something totally different.

If they go classic I hope they use his design from his first appearance and the animated series. Always liked that better than his Silver and Bronze Age design.

How about a full-on CGI Mxy? Then you get someone to guest-voice him.
